RIDM

About

Founded in 1998 by documentary filmmakers who were passionate for their art form, the RIDM is a friendly meeting place where reality is celebrated in all its glorious elements. Comical or sad, moving or revolting, always one-of-a-kind and innovative, our acclaimed motion pictures help us to better grasp the issues that face our world.

About this Playlist

The current selection brings together Quebec films that distinguish themselves through their artistic quality and their unique perspective. They reflect the diversity of Quebec’s documentary film industry, with pieces that touch on the social, political or environmental, intimate portraits and avant-garde endeavours. Battle-tested filmmakers such as Isaac Isitan, Patricio Henriquez or Carole Poliquin recount events that shape our world, probe the essence of contemporary existence and bolster social action. Intimate personal films such as those by Catherine Veaux-Logeat, Benoit Pilon or Jeannine Gagné adroitly observe the characters in our daily lives that we never truly notice. Those cinematic outlooks that transform reality or enable us to better understand it may be submitted by emerging filmmakers (Tamara Taddeo, Emilie Hayes) or experienced ones alike (Lucie Lambert, Raymonde Provencher). The RIDM is proud to present this sundry selection that offers a glimpse into Quebec’s documentary talent pool.
